Tinubu presides over inaugural FEC meeting



President Bola Tinubu is currently presiding over the first federal executive council (FEC) meeting of his administration at the State House in Abuja.


On August 21, the president inaugurated 45 ministers who had been screened and confirmed by the senate.


The president thereafter charged them with helping him deliver on the “renewed hope” agenda of his administration.


“I expect that you will serve with integrity, dignity and deliver. I will hold you to that standard we all promised Nigerians,” the president had said.


 “Your assignment begins immediately.”


At the time of reporting, the FEC has just sang the national anthem and recited the pledge.


The press has been asked to leave the hall.

The first batch of ministers were nominated on July 27, with the list of a second batch transmitted to Godswill Akpabio, senate president, on August 2.


48 ministers were nominated by the president in total.


Three of the nominees, including Nasir el-Rufai, immediate past governor of Kaduna state, were not confirmed by the senate over security clearance.
